Feeling much better about that one Avs loss after seeing them take it to some other teams so handily.

I honestly thought Johansson was a complementary scoring winger with some playmaking ability, but dude is quite amazing at creating offense. Oh, and he apparently wants his name pronounced like Scarlett's.

I really thought that D-corps was gonna stink up the place but they don't look bad in the slightest. Don't know if the forward corps is just doing that much to make up for the lack of depth on the back end or if Severson and Co. are just better than we all thought.

Raise your hand if you not only thought the Devils would be the surprise front-runner in the league to start, but both Nico Hischer and Taylor Hall would be overshadowed by a 19-year-old 6th round pick from 2016?

This might become a Will Butcher HYPE thread before too long.

Devils still atop the Metro standings at 11-4-2 and tonight they'll welcome back Travis Zajac. They need defensive depth, but for now the speedy forward corps is getting it done.

I keep waiting for the bottom to drop out on them, and it's just not happening. Good for them. Bad for the rest of the Metro.

They're definitely this year's "fluke" team, their underlying numbers are still garbage. But that's not necessarily a bad thing so long as you don't let it derail the rebuild. The Avs have unfortunately done that twice now.

Tell that to the 2013-14 Avs. In fact, tell that to the 2013-14 Avs and then have them tell that to the 2016-17 Avs and see how that goes.
